A humorous gift can be the much needed distraction to take a hospital patient's mind off their injury or illness. Unlike most homes, hospitals can be very impersonal and sterile places, but the right gift can make a hospital stay more enjoyable. Some examples of humorous gifts are gift baskets, flip-books and T-shirts.
Gag Gift Baskets
Funny get well gift baskets can be ordered with a variety of gag items such as a lollipop skeletal arm, bubble gum band-aids, lifesavers gummies, an over-sized thermometer, toilet paper wrapped in caution tape, moon pies and joke books.
Flip-books are books that show objects, people or animals being animated as you flip the pages. The images can range anywhere from an animal swimming to a flower blooming. Flip-book kits can also be given, so that the recipient can make their own flip-book while in the hospital. Flip-book kits would make a great gift for people who are in the hospital for an extended period of time or children.
Give a T-shirt with a funny "get well" slogan or saying such as "I'm Not Sick, But I'm Not Well." T-shirts can also be purchased or made on sites such as Zazzle.com and CafePress.com.
A "Get Well Soon" stuffed animal can offer security and can be a playmate for a sick child. Some come dressed in hospital gowns or have tissues in hand. "Get Well" plushe toys come in various shape and come in varieties like a chicken pox or flu plush doll.
